Author: Laura Farr
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 29, 2017
Savannah Parker is miserable.
The reason: Josh Miller, her brother’s best friend.
Devastated by the unrequited love she has for Josh, she has no choice but to sit back and watch him play the field, her heart breaking a little more each time she sees him.
In an attempt to forget about Josh and move on, she distances herself from those who love her. Josh is never far from her thoughts though. In a desperate attempt to feel something for someone and fill the void, she makes a reckless choice – one that will change her life forever.
Once her secret is revealed, relationships are threatened, and Savannah stands to lose those closest to her. When she needs someone the most, Josh proves to be her greatest support, and soon the lines of friendship become blurred. When she confronts him about his feelings for her, he reveals a secret of his own – a secret that could destroy them before they’ve even started.
Can Savannah and Josh make a relationship work? Or are there some secrets that are too hard to overcome?
This was the second Laura Farr book that I have read. I read Taking Chances, which was the first book in the series based on a different couple. I had some problems with some of the decisions that the characters made and the way that the plot line went so I was wary about jumping into this book. It turned out I had a right to be wary. I enjoyed this book more than Taking Chances, but it still was not my favorite.
I just found myself frustrated with the characters more than I was enjoying them. There were definitely sweet moments in between the chaos, but not enough for me to truly love the book. I ended up skimming ahead and reading the last few chapters just to find out what ended up happening for Savannah and Josh. The ending was definitely sweet and I was really excited for them.
Of course, everyone connects to books in different ways so just because I was not a huge fan, doesn’t mean that someone else might enjoy it.
Overall Rating: ★★/★★★★★
